  • Clear plastic ornament
  • Paint
  • Paintbrush
  • Glitter
  • Cord, twine, or ribbon
  • Scissors
  • Permanent marker


Take the top off the ornament and using a funnel put some glitter inside. It will stick to the walls a little when you move it around.

Put the top back onto the ornament.

Paint your child’s thumb with white paint and have them press it firmly onto the ornament. You might want to press on their thumb a little, just not too hard.

Set the ornament aside to dry before continuing with the rest of the instructions. The white paint needs to be completely dry.

Using a paintbrush, have your child paint a hat and scarf on their snowman.

With the permanent marker, they can add a happy smile and eyes.
